What is CreativeGym?

"We had a fantastic team building day - We have been able to use our new skills on a daily basis and our team is more harmonious in its internal and external interactions."

Participants from Irish Cancer Society Team Building Day

CreativeGym is a people centred development program that unlocks and harnesses individual and group creativity to bring about greater workplace wellness through personal, team and organisational development and progression.

Engagement, in a multi-layered creative practice, participants create a team mural / artworks bringing to life a goal, be that a mission statement, shared value, ethos, strategy or simply a fun and fulfilling experience.

Our vision is to deliver an innovative and practical learning experience which builds confidence, communication and collaboration through creativity.

The team will work individually to form, develop and express their ideas and then come together to give and take advice, to assess, critique and explore these ideas. From there they will cohese these ideas collaboratively by consensus into a single unique and original painting.

"Really enjoyed the artwork challenge and the guys from CreativeGym were very friendly, helpful and encouraging"

It is this process which separates us from other teambuilding events as it allows for the individual and collective voice of the team to be expressed, explored and defined.

It helps to develop creative thinking processes, build effective communication and collaboration skills and improve teamwork among employees / collegues which is crucial to business and personal success through whole brain thinking and practise. On its own, right brain creative thinking and practise is powerful but when combined with left brain logic and organisation makes it a very potent force.

Art is an ideal flexible tool for team building and training. Our activities:
- engage the brain, body and emotions
- are enjoyable but effective
- work well for both men and women of all abilities
- are infinititely adapatable and can target specific issues
- are cost effective
- inspire, motivate and satisfy.

It can be structured to suit your needs, budget and timescale.

“With ‘creativity’ it is not necessarily and only about the end product but also the journey. It can teach us so much about ourselves allowing us to question, explore, experiment, engage and develop, and move in directions we hadn’t considered or thought possible.”
